a little bit of everything




















... a bit of improv {i.e. no plan}
... a bit of recycling, including shirts from mr.D and my FinL
and a bit of giveaway fabric from Liz at shushi'mquilting {thanx!}
... a bit of a wild mix of checks & florals
... a bit of fabric substituting when I ran out
oh, and a bit of lining-up-my-checks too!

Such a liberating way to sew, I love it! Linking up with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' here, with Leanne & Nicky for scraptastic Tuesday here, and for 'show & tell' here at sewfreshquilts

    1. Thanks Cynthia.
      I’ve been trying out combining checks & floral, I think the contrast works well.

  4. Beautiful blues. Think I still have some of that Denyse Schmidt on the shelf! Do I spy some mod corsage in there?

  5. What a pleasant restful quilt. All it needs is a good book, some cooler weather, and cocoa. Thanks for sharing.

  6. That is so pretty! I, too, love the pops of the bright color. I was thinking pink, but maybe it's red?! I really like the quarter log cabin block. Going to have to put it on my list!

  7. Linda, you created a lovely quilt out of random scraps. Order from chaos and beautifully done. I love how in spite of so many different fabrics, the effect is predominantly blue. And those pops of color add the perfect pop!!!

  12. I think I need to start buying my hubbies shirts in co-ordinating shades. That way I can have fun when he "outgrows" them too. A very cool quilt. Have a great week.
